It seems that I still have an aftereffect of my recent outfit post, the beige midi pencil skirt. I showed in that look how to be bold in a mix of subdued colors. But contrary to the common assumption that pencil skirt is meant only for work, you can also look romantic in a pencil skirt. In fact, we now see an array of varied styles for pencil skirts and you get to pick the skirt to wear to different events.
Today, I´d like to focus on how to recreate romantics looks with a knee-length pencil skirt. You know, this style of skirt has rightfully earned the label of “power skirt”, yet let´s take a look at how a lace skirt could look powerful, and how a strong skirt could look feminine.
1. Lace knee pencil skirt for special events
This lace pencil skirt is created with the sole purpose of romance. It beautifully fits and hugs your curves for a sensational silhouette. It´s perfect to wear to a date or to an evening party. I love that it has a subtle stripe pattern, thanks to its horizontal stripe underneath which is subdued by a white lace overlay. Stripes and lace are hot trends for summer. What if you can nail both trends in a single skirt?
Go for a monochrome statement by partnering this skirt with a black and white dotted sleeveless top. It´s hard to tell which one will draw the eye – is it the sophisticated pattern clash, the feminine lace, or the right amount of figure hugging?
Polishing up the look with a sequined clutch, a double ankle strap pump, and a complementary sequined strap wrist watch, sounds like an ideal path to take. What do you think?
2. Fitted lace skirt for work
How do you wear lace skirt to work without appearing like a girl ready for a date? Pick a dark blue lace pencil skirt because this color always looks confident and professional. This skirt also has a nice sensational fit with a stunning lace scalloped hem and a slit at the back.
Wear it with a black shell top to maintain the effortless elegance of the look, and add a dramatic d’orsay pump to accentuate your sleek lines. An electric blue handbag is a perfect tonal additional to your ensemble, it keeps that power attitude while adding just a bit of color.
Because your outfit is already heavy, wear a light, fresh-looking makeup to offset the powerful statement of your outfit.
3. Feminine with black pencil skirt
We know that a black midi pencil skirt is the most versatile skirt you could ever have. However, it´s also easy to look dull in it. You probably throw over a button down, a black suit blazer, and that´s it, same look for the office all the time.
This summer, give your black knee length pencil skirt a boost by teaming it with a light pink shell top channeling the 60s chic? By adding something unusual or unexpected to you looks, you keep things fresh. If bearing your arm isn´t appropriate for the office, layer over your top an elegant but bold pink cardigan.
Keep things even more exciting with a pair of luxurious, at the same time seductive, leopard print d’orsay pumps.
